#HOUSEYARNS – Florence Omagbemi Gets Straight To Work


Newly appointed interim coach of the Super Falcons, Florence Omagbemi says the

task of re-positioning the team for better results is the responsibility of all Nigerians.

She is however optimistic the once- conquering Super Falcons will re-claim her

position soon.The Falcons failed to make it beyond the group stage at Canada 2015

FIFA Women’s World Cup, forcing the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to sack

coach Edwin Okon.

His replacement, Chris Danjuma, who led the team on interim capacity, could not do

better as the team failed to pick a medal of any colour at the All Africa Games in

Congo Brazzaville. Things got worst, when the seven-times African champions failed

to qualify for the Rio 2016 Olympics as they suffered a 3-2 aggregate loss to

Equatorial Guinea.

Before then, ex-player, coach Uche Eucharia had failed with the team, as she could

not qualify the girls for the All Africa Games in Maputo and the 2012 Olympics in


Omagbemi, who was appointed alongside former goalie, Ann Agumanu- Cheijine and

former striker, Pepertua Nkwocha by the NFF lastweek, said over the weekend that

though the task ahead of them appears enormous, but declared that ‘together, we

will achieve our goals.’
